I need 15 more views to get to a total of 1,000 on my YouTube Channel, Donald Glenn and his musical friends. If you haven’t seen it yet, it would be cool if you could check it out. Is that too needy?
Celebrated author and composer, John MacLachlan Gray, will read from his 2013 best seller, The White Angel, at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, September 28th. The evening, which kicks off the fall season of the Sunshine Coast Arts Council’s Annual Reading Series, may also feature some sneak-previews from John’s current project tentatively titled Vile Spirits.
One of the most versatile and multi-talented creative artists in Canada, John’s storied career includes stints on the stage, TV, film and radio both as a playwright and a composer. He is probably best known for his landmark of Canadian musical theatre, Billy Bishop goes to War, which he wrote and composed with Eric Peterson in 1978. Gray received both the Governor General’s Literary award and a Golden Globe for the musical, which was produced on and off-Broadway and released as a feature film in 2011.
In later life, John turned to books as his preferred mode of expression and has published in both fiction and non-fiction genres. The White Angel, John’s fifth mystery-thriller, is a riveting fictional account of one of British Columbia’s most notorious unsolved crimes: the murder of Scottish Nanny Janet Stewart, who was found dead of a gunshot wound in the Vancouver home of her employer in 1924. Vile Spirits is set in the year following, and like White Angel is based on true life events and features some of the same characters.
Here’s a simple way to protect the gyprock wall in your garage from water leaks and save a plastic bottle from the landfill at the same time. Choose a wide-mouth plastic bottle and cut away the bottom half on a diagonal leaving the mouth intact. Unscrew your hose and slide the bottle onto the tap. Replace the hose, and voila. Now, drips from the tap will run down the bottle to the floor instead down your wall.
